Roasted Greek Chicken
This is the first Greek dish I've ever eaten, and it just may be the most delicious chicken I've ever had in my life! I didn't have lemons so subbed 2T lemon juice for each lemon. I had five leg quarters so upped all ingredients to 5. I cut back the salt and pepper by 1 tsp each. There was way too much of the spice mixture even after heavily coating both sides of the chicken. With all that lemon juice, there were a LOT of drippings, which prevented the skin from getting crispy. But we don't eat the skin anyway, so it wasn't a problem. I scraped the spices off the skin, then dipped the chicken in them. I served it with the Greek green beans from this site (also Ahhh-mazing!) and used 1 tsp of the leftover spices from this recipe in that dish. There's still 2-3 tsp left. Will DEFINATELY make again. It was a bit salty, but not unpleasantly so. I will cut back on the salt a bit more next time.

Greek Green Beans
Best. Beans. Ever. Never been a fan of beans, but these were amazing! I halved the recipe and used 2 cans of cut green beans and a can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano. Based on other comments, I cut the olive oil by 1/3 and doubled the garlic. And instead of the salt, I used 1 tsp. of the spice mixture left over from the Roasted Greek Chicken from this site (equal parts of dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, salt, and ground black pepper). I think this will be my go-to dish for my next pot luck!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus
Delicious! I halved the salt as others had mentioned, and it was still too salty, although I have no idea how the quantity I had compared to "a bunch," since it was from a friend's garden. I also didn't have lemon juice. Asparagus is a new veggie for us, and both my husband and I enjoyed it.
